Being a Great Mum

Post mothers day, the perfect time to reflect. I want to teach Sienna emotional intelligence; like the importance of loving herself, of looking after her own needs as well as an appreciation of and empathy with the needs of others (like what would mummy like to do on mothers day).

I want to expose her to great experiences and adventures, meeting tea pluckers in sri lanka, plucking mountain pepper berries in Gippsland gullies, while ensuring there are also enough challenges to teach her to fight. I want to be her best friend and greatest supporter, and be able to follow through on ‘no TV for a week’. And I want to get her to school on time, with homework done, correct books and school jacket in bag two days in a row.

What do you think are the elements of being a great mum?
